Hutch Hooray!

Hutch Hooray!
Han found this hutch at a used furniture store for $85. That’s a great deal considering how she can sell it for way more now that it’s all beautiful and stuff.
 I shudder to think of the time when that gold trellis design was in style, or “groovy” or “keen” or “neato” depending on how far back in time we actually need to go. Looks so much more open now without it. Thanks Han!

    Oh my, this is beautiful! How did you get the design off the glass? I sometimes see similar pieces and never thought about taking the design off. You did an amazing job!

    This is nice! I’m currently refinishing a credenza (I should have it wrapped up this weekend) and I was thinking about painting it a similar color- love it!!!! Nice job! Big fan of the green accent piece inside too!

    Thanks for the nice comments everyone! And thank you Lindsey for posting my hutch makeover– I’m super proud of it! And as far as the color goes, I tried to get as close as I could to a Tiffany blue.

    That is wonderful, how did you get the gold off the glass! razor blade? I would love to know! I often pass up mirrors because of gold designs!

    Its not that expensive to replace the glass either. I never would’ve thought to scrape it off; but just my luck I would scratch it.
